about

Written and recorded during a week at Nathan Evans' recording studio "The Womb" in Lausanne, Switzerland.

lyrics

From his hole the white rabbit emerges so I serve his tea and cake. He says "Oh, no!" and bids me so long upon seeing the time of day. "Oh my worried stars," he hurries as he scurries away. And the time keeps right on plodding along when I hear that rabbit say: "Happiness is funny, money is the way, oh I've got to be on time to the cabaret. Got to make my pennies and my dimes today, so there is no time to play." From the floor, the mad hatter's a banker astute in the ways of the trade. He says "Oh, yes, on my pile of money I'll make myself happy one day." As the pile keeps on bloating, he just keeps hurting away. By the time he's ready to pay to be happy, the time has floated away. Happiness is funny, money is the way, oh I've got to be on time to the cabaret. Got to make my pennies and my dimes today, so there is no time to play.
